Everton and Southampton in mysterious EPL defender link
Everton and Southampton were both linked by the Daily Mirror to Aston Villa defender Ron Vlaar for a couple of hours before the story was deleted from their website.
The Dutch defender is out of contract at Villa Park so is available on a free transfer and the Saints and Toffees were both linked in the article to the experienced defender.
The 30 year old has suffered a series of injuries which has kept him out of the Villa team over the last couple of seasons, but performed admirably when called upon and also at last summer’s FIFA World Cup.
Vlaar still made 78 appearances for Aston Villa in 3 years at the club and would be a useful addition to either club.
Would Ron Vlaar be a decent signing for Everton on a free transfer?
